I’m in the trenches of transitioning TWO to a toddler bed in preparation for sleeping in a big twin bed soon. We have installed a child proof knob on the inside of his door, otherwise he would be running wild when it’s time to be sleeping.
He stands at his door and screams … and screams … and eventually finds his way over to the rocking chair, where he has fallen asleep the past two nights. We pick him up and move him to his bed, but if he happens to wake up, we start all over again.
This morning, his diaper leaked at 4:30 a.m. and he has been pretty much freaking out ever since. There are few things that annoy me more than being woken up repeatedly, so around 5:00 I accepted it for what it was, got him out of his room and started a load of laundry.
I spent the next hour and a half trying to keep him from waking the other sleeping members of our household. At 6:30 I moved the clothes from the washing machine to the dryer and returned to the kitchen to find this.
I believe he was preparing to leap when I intervened. My nerves are shot, and I’m exhausted. But thankfully, because this is my second child, I know it gets better.
